Thanks for checking in Shuznuts. Your box is packed and will go out tomorrow.

I got a beer on Friday that had 33 on the cap, but I threw the box out. Which one is this?

According to my records, everyone should have received the juniper rye bock. I hope y'all enjoy them, and I look forward to the critiquing!!

I'll probably start tasting one a day starting this Friday. Will post my reviews. I can't wait!

So far I have received:

4) Juniper Rye Bock (dgez)
5) Fruitcake Old Ale (SavoryChef)
8) Honey Ginger IPA (RedBeard1)
10) Gingerbread Ale (sfrisby)
12) Abbey Weizen (jtakacs)

Most of you should've gotten my packages, if you haven't, PM me and I'll check the tracking number. I haven't tried any yet...will probably start cracking in next week!

I've updated the OP with labels designations/distinguishing cap marks, and will continue to do so as beers roll in...

Hey, all.

I just wanted you to know that I've been delayed but am finally sending stuff out. I'm leaving work at 3pm today, wrapping and packing the boxes, and--if I can get there before it closes--going to the UPS store to ship out. If it closes first, I'll hit the store first thing in the morning. Because of the delay, I'll post a general message here to confirm my drop-off time and I'll PM the tracking numbers.

Just so you know, it's been a combination of financial and time issues. But I've got all that taken care of finally. Once I ship these out, I will be able to fully relax and enjoy the holiday spirit (pun sorta intended).

One other point: my Brett BGS didn't taste right when I went to bottle it, so I'm not sending it out at this time. If it gets better and I can afford it, I'll shoot out a bottle at that point in the future. My plan then is to send two of the original recipe Saffron Tripel and one of the Saison yeast version--both of those are really good! If that doesn't work, please post here soon

Please accept my apologies for the delay and also for not posting here. I didn't want to post until I knew I was able to send the packages out. I've been so excited about this, the beers I've gotten so far look amazing, & there's no way I'm leaving anyone hanging!

Cheers!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

few more arrived - the carmel quad, the gingerbread porter and something else (i'll post later) - the spiced porter popped during shipping tho, not sure why - packed nicely... only lost a teaspoon so it'll get consumed tonight, albeit a bit flat...

Cracked open a gingerbread porter tonight. Delicious! Had to share it with my wife and she loved it too. It was the red waxed top, is there a difference between that and the green tops?

Also, after seeing everyone's professionally packed boxes, I'm hoping my hillbilly packing made it safely. Did everyone receive my bottles intact?

Gonna sample one beer a day between now and christmas, skipping a few work nights. This has been a really cool project!
